Creating and managing databaskets
A Databasket is a logical grouping of satellite data and/or F-TEP products and/or reference data held together for a particular purpose. A Databasket is identified by a name and a description.
By selecting a number of products in the Result Panel and clicking on the shopping cart button it is possible to create a Databasket containing the selected products.
The below image shows the panel to assign a name and a description to the databasket containing the products highlighted above.
The Databasket panel allows managing and/or creating Databaskets. The panel lists the all the Databaskets created by the user.
For each Databasket the available actions are detailed below.
- Load/Unload: All the products contained in the Databasket are loaded/unloaded in the map
- Clone: Create a new Databasket with the same content of the selected one. The user can specify the name and the description of the new Databasket.
- Delete: The Databasket is deleted. The user can confirm the action.
- Edit: Modify the name and the description of the Databasket.
A Databasket can be used as input for a processing, thus allowing launching a service or a graphical application on several files. The following picture shows the content of the datbasket "finland" loaded on the map and used as input of the service Sentinel-2 Toolbox.
NB: In this pre-release version-1 only Databaskets containing satellite products and products created by F-TEP itself are available.
It is possible to modify the content of a Databasket at any time after its creation. Moreover it's possible to create a Databasket containing mixed content, the sequence of pictures below shows the addition of a Sentinel-2 product to the Databasket "Finland" shown above containing Sentinel-1 products.
